3) Nazi Hunter
Ian Bell was captured by Rommel’s army in North Africa and dispatched to a prison camp, The Citadel, in Italy. A daring escape, accomplished by grabbing onto the axle of a moving goods train, led Bell into the company of the partisans in the Apennines. Working with them, he undertook many raids on German troops until he was recaptured and returned to a very different Citadel. As the war had progressed, the prison had become a virtual slaughterhouse. A quick-witted Bell managed to save himself from the firing squad, only to be brutally tortured by the Gestapo. At the war’s end Bell was recruited as a Nazi hunter and took pride in his successes. But was the notorious Martin Bormann allowed to slip through his fingers?
